Mayor Welcomes LMU to Old City Hall

Posted: 02/25/2008
Mayor Bill Haslam, Congressman John. J. Duncan, Pete DeBusk - chairman of the Lincoln Memorial University (LMU) Board of Trustees, Nancy Moody - President of LMU, James G. Alexander with the Old City Hall Partnership and William S. Owen with Asset & Equity Corporation took part in a signing ceremony welcoming Lincoln Memorial University as the new tenant in the Old City Hall at 9 a.m. on Monday, February 25th at 601 West Summit Hill. 

The ceremony was held in the old City Council chambers on the third floor of the building.

Lincoln Memorial University is establishing a satellite campus in the historic 64,000-square-foot building in downtown Knoxville.

Built in the 1840s the Old City Hall has variously served as Tennessee School for the Deaf, the home of Knoxville's city government and as a hospital for both Confederate and United States soldiers during the Civil War.
